'Fakht you' changed to 'Just you' to avoid row: Chitrangada
Actress Chitrangada Singh, who has grooved to an item song in Shirish Kunder's 'Joker', reveals the filmmakers changed the lyrics of the song 'I want fakht you' to 'I want just you' to avoid any unwanted reactions
She says ‘Fakht you’ is actually a Marathi word, meaning ‘only you’.
"So everyone doesn't understand it. They can interpret it in some other way also. So, to save that situation, they (filmmakers) decided to go with 'Just you' and it is just as much fun," the 36-year-old said here.
"Some people found it ('I want fakht you') offensive, but that is not the intention of the filmmakers at all. It is a family film and for kids," she added.
Meanwhile, Chitrangada also feels that comparisons between her song and Kareena Kapoor's 'Halkat jawani' in ‘Heroine’ are inevitable.
"Well, I think comparisons are inevitable. Whatever you do, you may dance like the other person or not, there are bound to be comparisons about whether you did good enough or you didn't do good enough," said Chitrangada.
"But I think it is great that this is the time for songs like this and I think we have a great number," she added.
"Joker", directed by Shirish Kunder, stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha and hits theatres on August 31.
